  • Beach Bum

    0
    While your Akita's normal energy levels might make them anything but a bum at home, that doesn't mean they can't be one for Halloween! Toss a comfortably loose inflatable tube around their neck, give them a pair of sunglasses and a plastic pail and shovel and you'll have everyone convinced they're ready to soak up the sun and sand!

  • Mariner

    While your Akita's coat was made for snow, they're perfectly happy in water and now you can show everyone exactly how much with a perfectly suitable Mariner costume. A striped shirt, matching fluff-ball-topped hat and any combination of a small anchor or life ring will have them navigating towards fun in no time.

  • Butterfly

    While your Akita may not always be outgoing with strangers, you can turn them into a social butterfly on Halloween with a butterfly costume. All you need is a cute pair of colorful wings you can strap on them, a pair of antennae and possibly some bug-eyed glasses and they'll be ready to float around, adored by all.

  • Minnie Mouse

    0
    While Akitas may not be the most mini of dogs, that doesn't mean you can't make them a Minnie Mouse with a super cute costume. With the help of an oversized red and white polka dot bow (and dress to match, if you can find it) as well as some black, round ears, your bubbly pup will have onlookers guessing exactly who they are in seconds.

  • Office Dog

    0
    Halloween is made for fun, but that doesn't mean you can't show everyone that your dog means business when it comes to costumes. Dress them up as an office dog by giving them a comfortable necktie and adding in a pair of lensless glasses or a white dog (or shirt) collar for added effect.

  • Princess

    0
    If your dog loves to be pampered (let's be real, what dog doesn't?), give them the treatment they deserve by dressing them accordingly in a princess costume. All they need is a frilly pink tutu or dress and a sparkly tiara and no one will guess who'll be giving orders during trick-or-treating!

  • Pumpkin

    0
    For orange-colored Akitas, you may need less work than you think. Outfit your dog with a perfectly Halloween-themed costume by adding in other orange elements like a jack-o-lantern sweater, little green stem hat or a pair of orange glasses for an undeniable reason to call them "pumpkin" all day!

  • Vacationer

    0
    Every dog needs a vacation and what better way to do so than dressing them up and taking them door-to-door for endless treats? Wrap them comfortably in leis and add a beachcomber hat for a timeless vacationer look or throw in a beach-themed shirt for a touristy flair!

  • Vampire

    0
    Since your dog is probably already pretty good at taking a bite out of things and likely has a pretty sizeable pair of incisors, complete their vampiristic look with a red and black cape that will make onlookers scream with delight!
